Christ is calling us to rest with Him. Recovery in Christ offers us a way out of carrying heavy burdens that have been weighing us down. In Matthew 11, Christ is saying we no longer have to try to work our way to God through the Law. Christ understood how the Law of Sin and Death was weighing us down. Through Christ, we are free from the law of Sin and Death, and now we are under Grace. The Grace of Christ is where we find rest.
It’s through Christ’s death on the cross and His resurrection, we are free from the Law of Sin and Death. Christ died for all our sins, every past, present, and future sin. His death gives believers in Him eternal life and freedom from everything that weighed us down. Christ has lifted us out of bondage and has brought us to a place where we are free to rest in His peace.
In Christ-centered recovery, we find rest. Christ is removing the chains of our past that have left us in bondage. Christ is also removing all the old baggage that we have been carrying around. What a relief it is to finally be free to experience life in a way Christ desires. Whatever our burdens have been, they no longer have any place in our new life. We are free to rest in the comfort of Christ’s Grace.
